Library Media Plan
For Stockbridge Elementary
The SES Media Center is dedicated to promoting…
· Reading for pleasure
· Reading in the content areas for information
· Information access
Goals relating to school goals:
· To promote reading, the media center will provide a wide assortment of literature and increase and update the collection by purchasing more AR books. The priority may need to be replacing books due to the high amount of damage and loss.
· To promote the CCGPS the media center will continue to purchase materials to go with the national curriculum.
· The media committee will review and prioritize equipment and media materials needs for the school.
· To promote cultural diversity the media specialist will provide and read books that reflect the various cultures at SES and the world while supporting standards taught in the classrooms.
· Cooperative planning between the media specialist and the teacher insures meaningful learning experiences that are integrated with the curriculum and that promote student achievement. I am trying to increase my collaboration with teachers as well as find ways to teach and support the CCGPS by meeting with grade levels, talking to individual teachers, and by viewing the curriculum maps.
· To improve my technology skills I plan on attending conferences and seek others to enhance my learning. (This has been limited this year due to being a fulltime special and needing to support the teachers.)
· Coordinate the Georgia Children’s Picture Book Award program with media skills and CCGPS skills for grades K-3. (read by media specialist)
· Host the Scholastic Book Fair in the fall to promote reading for pleasure and to raise funds for new books and media materials.
· Celebrate “Read Across America” in March.
Information Literacy Instruction:

Long term goals:
· Continue to increase collaboration with teachers in all grade levels with the focus on teaching the CCGPS curriculum.
